Would you guess that all VW approved 507 oils are compatible?

Compatible with what? Each other? Non-507 oils?

If they're API certified, they have to be mixable with other API oils.

No guessing involved. If the oil meets VW504/507 then they are compatible. In fact, VW considers them identical.

dparm, it didn't occur to me that my question wasn't clear. Compatible with other 507 spec'd oils. Based of the replies, I'm guessing a 507 rated oil is compatible with other brands of 507 rated oils.

Yes, you can mix other 507 oils. Is it optimal? No.
